Episode 088: Overcoming Orthorexia with Kate Markovitz

In this episode, I’m joined by Kate Markovitz, a Nutritional Therapy Consultant, a 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach, creator of The Mindfull Makeover program, and an Executive Director with Beautycounter, as well as a holistic lifestyle & personal growth advocate for women who are over media dogma and want to be free and confident in their own skin.

One day a few months ago over on Instagram, she shared how she struggled and overcame Orthorexia (having an unhealthy obsession with being healthy, most commonly through diet and exercise).

I connected to it because in hindsight, Orthorexia was something that I lived through too. So, I invited Kate to join me for a real-people episode to have a deeper discussion on this topic.

You’ll hear us each share:

  • Our stories on what led us to develop Orthorexia

  • What life was like as we lived through it

  • What were the defining moments that pulled us on the other side

  • And what helped us most past it

Episode 076: Eating for Nutrition vs. Avoiding Unhealthy Foods

One of the outcomes from my experiment in following the Keto Quick Start 30-day Meal Plan (Episode 074) was the realization that I had been eating to avoid unhealthy foods versus eating for nutrition, or rather nutrient-density.

In this episode, I’m joined by Nutrition Consultant and fellow 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach, Katie Leadbetter for a conversation exploring this topic.

You’ll hear us discuss:

  • What does it mean to eat for nutrient-density

  • How is that different than eating to avoid unhealthy foods

  • Mindful and Intuitive Eating

  • The role that programs like the 21-Day Sugar Detox, Keto Quick Start Meal Plan or even Whole 30 can play in mindful and intuitive eating

  • And a whole lot more!

Unlike typical episodes with guests, this is not an interview, but rather, a conversation with two nutrition and wellness practitioners sharing our views and philosophies on this topic!
